Awesome Music / Devil May Cry

One reason the party's always so cuhrayzee in DMC is its selection of music:

    Devil May Cry 1 

    Devil May Cry 2 
  • "Shoot The Works", the second of Dante's regular battle themes, keeps the hard rocking of the first game and turns it up several notches
  • After completing both Dante and Lucia's campaigns, you're allowed to listen to "Heads Or Tails", a song rather similar to that of Seeds of Love from the original game: Starting off hard rocking but breaking down into something much more mystical.

    Devil May Cry 3 

    Devil May Cry 4 
  • The opening song, "Out of Darkness", fits in with the church setting that Kyrie's singing for, given that the Order of the Sword worships Sparda.
  • "The Time Has Come", Nero's battle theme, and by association, "Shall Never Surrender", the closing credits. "The Time has Come", being a battle theme, is very in tone with the music of the past games, whereas the second half, "Shall Never Surrender", is more soothing, almost displaying how Nero's come to terms with his demonic side, as has Kyrie, and his relationship with Dante being much closer than at the start of the game.
  • "Blackened Angel" and "Forza del Destino", Dante's boss themes. The first one helps establish Dante's status as The Dreaded, who only plays around with Nero because it amuses him. "Forza del Destino" plays during the second battle, where Dante stops pulling his punches and becomes the ultimate test of Nero's mettle before confronting Sanctus.
  • "Lock and Load (Blackened Angel mix)", Dante's battle theme. A remix of the battle theme from DMC 1, it adds lyrics from "Blackened Angel" to show that Dante has grown stronger and wiser during the time between two games while still retaining his laid-back outlook.
  • "Sworn Through Swords", the theme of Berial, would fit right in with the OST of the third game. But then, the vocals ARE by Shaun McPherson, vocalist of the tracks in said game.
  • "Swipe of Sword" is almost the successor to the original game's "Ultraviolet".
  • The Last Judgement (a Pachislot version of 4) has "Dream Out Loud", an absolutely rocking song made exclusive to this version of the game that wouldn't sound out of place in an anime opening.

    Devil May Cry 5 
  • "Devil Trigger" sung by Ali Edwards, Nero's battle theme, is an incredibly fast-paced and energetic theme that fits Nero like a robo-murder-arm. Main version not guttural and demonic enough for you? Then check out this heart-stopping heavy metal cover by Little V Mills. As a bonus, try this dual mix with both versions meshed seamlessly together.
  • "Subhuman", Dante's battle theme, performed by Suicide Silence. Despite being a controversial song, it is without a doubt a headbang worthy track that feels like a Badass Boast in aggrö-metal form, and even some listeners who dislike the Screamo Music lyrics consider its instrumental component to be legitimately impressive. As with "Devil Trigger", Little V Mills provides an epic metal cover generally considered to fix all of the problems with the original song.
